What is the difference between the performance of tungsten carbide balls and steel balls?

Tungsten carbide balls and steel balls are two common materials used in industry. From a hardness perspective, tungsten carbide balls (chemical formula WC) are known for their excellent hardness, which is similar to that of diamond, making them an extremely hard type of metal. In comparison, steel balls, while also quite hard, usually struggle to reach the level of tungsten carbide balls. This high hardness gives tungsten carbide balls a significant advantage in applications that require extremely high wear and impact resistance, such as cutting tools, nozzles, and marbles.

Chemical stability, tungsten carbide ball has strong chemical stability, insoluble in water, hydrochloric acid and sulfuric acid and other strong acids, even at high temperatures can keep its performance stable. This characteristic makes tungsten carbide ball in the harsh working environment can be used for a long time without corrosion. In contrast, although steel balls also have a certain degree of corrosion resistance, their performance may be affected under certain strong acids or high temperature conditions.

In terms of application areas, tungsten carbide balls and steel balls each have their own unique application scenarios. Tungsten carbide balls are widely used in cutting tools, kiln structural materials, jet engines, gas turbines and other fields due to their high hardness, wear resistance and chemical stability. Steel balls, on the other hand, are widely used in bearings, hardware, electronics, mechanical equipment and other fields due to their good mechanical properties and relatively low cost.
